Magic Theatre is among the most prominent theaters in the nation solely dedicated to the development and production of new plays. Established in 1967, Magic Theatre gives voice to playwrights, both emerging and established, and develops and promotes the work of theater artists. Magic Theatre’s history includes premieres of over 200 new works, including Sam Shepard’s Buried Child, the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1979. The roster of other writers whose works have premiered at the Magic reads like a Who’s Who of the American theater, including David Mamet, Michael McClure, Nilo Cruz, Rebecca Gilman, and Edna O’Brien, among many others.
